Product Description
Biology Unit

This unit covers the biosphere. We covered some of the following topics:

• Biosphere – Levels of organization (We talked about terms such as: individual, population, community, habitats, ecosystem, biome, biosphere)
• Biomes
• Climate Zones
• Biomes and their abiotic factors (physical, non-living factors that shape an ecosystem)
• Dominant plants and animals in the biomes
• Feeding relationships (herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, detritivores, decomposers)
• Food chains, food webs, the energy pyramid
• Biological interactions: (Amensalism, Predation, Competition, Antibiosis, etc.)

Biosphere, Climate Zones Pages: There are 1-page worksheets on the biosphere (levels of organization), climate zones. There is also a printable biome map.

Biomes: There are 15 full size (8x11) pages with pictures of each of the 9 biomes.

Biomes: There are four different types of worksheets on the 9 biomes. We used them at different points of our unit to review the terms; these include a matching page, a fill in the blank page, a notebook page (where students can write a description next to the word and picture) – and the teacher’s answer page (with full descriptions of each biome).

Abiotic Factors: There are matching cards with the abiotic factors for each biome. Students can practice matching the biome with the descriptions. There is also a matching page.

Dominant Plants, Dominant Animals: There are description cards of the dominant plants and dominant animals of each biome. There is a matching page of the dominant plants and the biome. There is a worksheet for students to identify the dominant animals in specific biomes.

Habitat vs. Ecosystem – Feeding Relationships: There is a teacher resource page that discuss/describe the different terms such as producer consumer… and the different types of consumers (herbivores, etc.). There is a matching page with animals and the feeding relationship that best describes them. There are also matching cards with the terms and pictures of animals.

Anatomy of a Cat and Dog: there is an anatomy page. Students can research and label the inner organs of a cat and/or dog. (Answer key is provided.)

Food chain, Food Webs, Energy Pyramid: There are several handout/pages on these topics.

Biological Interactions: There is a student handout about the various terms - Amensalism, Predation, Competition, Antibiosis, etc. There is an identification page where students have to identify what type of biological interaction is taking place in the photo provided. There is also a matching page (terms with their definitions).

General Review Pages: There are two fill-in-the-blank review pages for students to identify the terms covered in this unit.
